Analysis of the curriculum matrices of the major in Social Communication with Journalism license in Brazil: a portrait of the national reality

The article is the result of a research journalistic education and aimed at building a picture of the national structure of Social Communication with Journalism license major curricula matrices in Brazil. We used the methodology of quantitative and qualitative. Our main findings were that the space for the content of Synthesis/Communication in the curricular structure throughout the country is minimal, which makes the inter-relationship between theory and practice more difficult. Secondly, we noticed that, despite the assumptions set out in the National Curriculum Guidelines for the major in Social Communication, regional realities are not included in the curriculum matrices of the majors.
